Bengals Banter: The Bengals can repeat as division champions

Here's what we know. Save for an injury, Carson Palmer will be the team's quarterback when the season starts. But as Marc Hardin writes when talking about a possible draft pick for a quarterback this year, "J.T. O'Sullivan (9 TDs in 8 starts in 8 seasons with 6 teams) and Jordan Palmer (12 career attempts, 25.3 passer rating in 2 seasons) are the current backups."

Chick Ludwig writes that the Bengals will repeat and win the division again, provided they "avoid injury, have a strong draft and remain on the good side of the law."

Mike Zimmer's son, Adam, was hired as the Kansas City Chiefs' defensive assistant and assistant linebackers coach. Zimmer spent that last four seasons with the New Orleans Saints, apart of the Super Bowl winning coaching staff.

Former Bengals draft pick, Reggie McNeal, is looking to return to the NFL as a wide receiver after spending two seasons in the Canadian Football League.

USC's Taylor Mays is likely the best prospect coming out of USC this year. And while some scouts question his ball skills, Charles Robinson writes that a lot of the whispers from scouts remind him of what was said of Troy Polamalu when he entered the NFL Draft. Mays is a potential target for the Bengals.
